BKK Bank is not reverting back to Visa/Mastercard debit cards and the Union Pay cards are useless as nobody will accept them because of transaction problems. But it is easy to go and open a savings account with them. Today I went with my wife to SCB at Big C to open a new account there and they are just as stupid as BKK. They want my passport, my marriage certificate, my wifes ID, my wifes house book and they will send the information to Bangkok to see if I can open a general savings account with a standard Visa debit card. Does anybody know of a bank in Khon Kaen that uses brains and customer service to open a general savings account and supply a general standard Visa/Mastercard debit card. I do not have a work permit.Thanks guys for any help

No, I do not know any of your friends. I was based at H.M.A.S. Rushcutter in Sydney and at Vung Tau in Vietnam during the war

wynnum, you are correct in that it is 52 years this Saturday since the battle of Long Tan but you have the date wrong it is the 18/8/2018 not the 18/9/2018.Normally a friend Doug Merritt and I would try and arrange something as we did on Remembrance Day at Blue's Bar but unfortunately Doug is back in Australia for medical reasons and I will not be in Khon Kaen on Saturday. Doug and I are both ex-navy and we both served in Vietnam

plus you don't use any of the commercial pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers as everything is fed by natural nutrients and not chemicals also by not growing them in the soil the roots are not working hard to search for the nutrients in the ground and therefore the actual plant grows quicker because all the energy goes into the growth and not into the searching for the food.

because of a restriction in space it is easier to grow lettuce, chilli's, basil, cellery, etc using hydroponics instead of traditional gardening and that leaves more room for the larger things  like papaya and things like that to grow. In an area 20' long, 2' wide and 7' high on a concrete base I can grow more vegetables and herbs than a 20' by 2' dirt garden.

Today the wife and I went for a drive up the highway towards Udon Thani to get some nutrients for the hydroponics. There used to be a place on the right hand side heading north that used to make hydroponic systems and from memory it was not far out of Khon Kaen but we drove as far as Non Sa-at but could not find the place. Does anybody remember the place and does anybody know where there is a hydroponics supplies in or around the Khon Kaen area.Thanks for any help

Dealing with Thailand government / Re: ID Card for Falang?

I am particualy interested in what avvocato needed for his Yellow Book and at what window he went to as I have inquired about the Yellow Book at the Ban Pet window and the paperwork that he wants is far more than what is listed on Franks post. The man at the Ban Pet window wants all the paperwork on Frank's post plus a copy of the Kor Ror 2, a Residence Certificate from Immigration and as we are not renting he also wants a copy of the title deeds of the property and he is the person that issued my wife with the new Blue Book at the same time that I inquired about the Yellow Book

avvocato, just out of curiosity, as you got your Yellow Book last month what did you need to get your Yellow Book?

Rex, I to do not like flame wars as they have a tendency to ruin the names of forums. I personally find it insulting where Tonytj has named several establishments and made the insinuation that every girl that works in those establishments is involved in the sex industry. My wife and I know some of the girls that work in these establishments and they are NOT involved in the sex industry like Tonytj has claimed. I think that there needs to be some way of stopping these slanderous attacks on people who are not here to be able to defend themselves. I believe that anyone who uses this forum to commit slander or defame anyone should be removed as a member.

But maybe, just maybe, Screamer, a lot of those thousands that you are talking about are like me and do not use the online service and prefer to go in person to the Immigration office so that they are sure that their report is done on time.

Head out towards the airport along Miliwan Road and after you go through the traffic lights at the University  you will go past a Shell s/s on the left then as you approach a green sign with DOS on it the soi is alongside the sign and entrance to DOS Hardware. there are only 2 buildings on the right in that soi and Banjai is the second one

What do you claim as the "entertainment" business? Please give your examples of these types of businesses

every night if I want as my wife works at Banjai Massage and Spa but I usually prefer to have a foot spa and massage or body scrub because I find I feel a lot better after it.Henry not everyone is interested in the other types of massage and not every massage shop offers that type of service
